Neat! I was just losing patience with blowing leaf yesterday. Think hubby would know if I took apart his laptop cooling pad?

Shawnette, you just gave me a fantastic gift! I have been lusting for a vacuum box and now I don't have to spend the big money to do it!

Hugs to you!

Shawnette,
Thanks for the instructions for such a useful tool. I didn't even know this type of device existed. Good thing since I am a tool junky (as well as glass).
How do I install the on/off switch? Wire it to the battery with the other black and red lines?
thanks
Darlene

I know it's simple (now I know!), but I would never in a million years have figured that out. Thank you! I'm really impressed.

Found a cheap fan at staples for 8 dollars. My DH hooked up allligator clips so I can just unclip when not in use. Thank you so much. I always have trouble with my foil flying.

Thank you for posting this, I'm going to make one.

And I just got rid of an old computer! Luckily the fans aren't too pricey though, so I'll stop by & find one soon.

You rock! Thanks for sharing this.

I know I've had things that have a little vinyl piece that has metal pieces that snap onto a battery. I'm trying to remember what I've seen them on. I'm thinking that wiring one of those to the fan would make it easy to add and remove the battery.

It would be a very slow clean up.

Thanks for bumping this up again.

I have the parts and will be putting one together tonight.

I found a metal pin board at the craft store to use instead of the screen. It is 4" x 4" and a little larger than the fan that I have. So far this will cost me $4.99.
